Go Cornish are thrilled to announce two new language resources, for children and adults wanting to learn Cornish.

Partnering with Android and Apple app providers Magi Ann and Memrise, we have created a series of content rich courses with audio to help you learn Cornish on the go.

Magi Ann: For Children and Big Kids

Winner of ‘Best Educational Project’ at the 2017 National Lottery Awards, Magi Ann is an app developed by Menter Iaith Flintshire to support children and parents/carers who are learning Welsh for the first time. Go Cornish have now worked with the Magi Ann team to provide a series of 12 simple stories to help your child learn Cornish. Read along, listen and tap on the words to hear the pronunciation and to see an English translation

You can download the app on Apple and Android.

“Congratulations to you ALL for the amazing work with the Magi Ann Kernewek app – I can’t believe that such a thing exists! It is so important in the history of the language, and it is so great with my son as well. Big FAT thank you!”

Memrise: For Adult Beginners and Learners

With their team of world-leading researchers, Memrise have created a language learning app that is both scientific with its fast learning methods and fun in its use of games and quizzes. Go Cornish have provided excellent language content that guides learners through greetings, asking and answering questions, numbers and simple mutations.

How to find the Memrise Go Cornish course

Memrise don’t currently enable community created courses to be found within the smart phone app itself. Therefore, we’ve put together the following step-by-step guide to help you find our Go Cornish course and get learning.

  1. Create an account on the Memrise website, and click ‘Start learning now’ on the Go Cornish Memrise course.
  2. Download the Memrise app on Apple or Android.
  3. Sign in to the app using your Memrise account details and you’ll find the Go Cornish course ready to use.

“This combination of app technology with quality Cornish content is going to completely revolutionise the learning experience for children and adults alike. Proper job to Magi Ann and Memrise for helping us make this Go Cornish project a reality.”
